Kent Jones, a guest preacher at the church plant we’re a part of gave us a great sermon this past Sunday to kick off the New Year. It’s often (wrongly) said that “the safest place to be is in the center of God’s will.” But those who have been there – John the Baptist, for example – hardly found it to be safe. Jesus has never been “safe for the whole family.”
As in Mr. Beaver’s famous quote from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe:
Safe? …Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good.
